    About a month ago, Jay Hollowpeter ( Sambaman ) came over for a painting session and we both did the same Wolf French Voltigeur bust. I had asked Jay to show me his tube oil flesh technique and we agreed it would realy be neet to have both of us do the same bust.

    Here is my finished version and I look forward to seeing Jay's version next.

    Thanks Marc and Peter. I really enjoyed this bust. The detail that was sculpted really made the painting a challenge to bring it out.

    Very nice Guy. I don't normally do busts, but after seeing this piece I may re-consider.

    Masterpiece. Awesome face painting. Nice shading of rest parts. And my favourite period. All in One.

    Best Regards
